I have no USB keyboard in 845.0.0 PXE booting on a physical machine. I have tried kernel+initrd, in addition to my full cloud-config & ignition setup.

What kind of keyboard is this? USB keyboards should work (we had trouble with Apple keyboards at some point).

It's a Dell keyboard. It's also a Dell virtual keyboard via iDRAC. I'll
take another keyboard over there and see if I can get an Asus keyboard
working.

Also, this is very interesting: I have root specified (though I don't want to specify root, it's just one of the options I'm testing) and rebooted the machine, and walked away (forgetting root was specified). When booting into the existing environment, I have keyboard. If I remove the root option, I still have no keyboard. I've tried this several times.

I tried several different keyboards yesterday, no dice.

I have the issue with ThinkPad Compact USB keyboard (it requires CONFIG_HID_LENOVO).

@dmeiser can you use lsusb under a different distribution to determine what driver is needed?

@marineam marineam commented Nov 16, 2015

@mischief lsusb is included in coreos

@mischief mischief commented Nov 17, 2015

@marineam but apparently @dmeiser cannot type because the driver is not present in coreos. a bit of a chicken/egg problem there..?

@dmeiser can ssh to the server with connected keyboard. however I am not sure lsusb can show correct hid driver (usb - yes, but not hid).
Also I have a few Dell's usb keyboard, so I need model from @dmeiser and if I have it, I can check driver.

From a CentOS7 machine running on the same hardware I have this:
Bus 001 Device 003: ID 0424:2512 Standard Microsystems Corp. USB 2.0 Hub
Bus 001 Device 004: ID 0624:0248 Avocent Corp. Virtual Hub
Bus 001 Device 005: ID 0624:0249 Avocent Corp. Virtual Keyboard/Mouse

I think CentOS has usb_hid compiled in, so I cannot give you the loaded modules.

Avocent KVM needs CONFIG_HIDRAW.
@dmeiser - iDRAC sometimes needs usbcore.autosuspend=-1 as kernel option.

@mmelnyk thanks! i'll enable it.

@dmeiser this should be fixed in the next alpha - please reopen the issue if enabling the USB_HIDRAW driver doesn't solve it.
